|The Edge Financial Daily's Top 10 Stock Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||9 ||While uncertainties in the market are certain, this has not stopped investors and fund managers from attempting the absurd in order to hit a "home run" in their stock picks. One of the key themes that will come into play in 2017 will be the US President-elect Donald Trump's policies as well as a possible increase in the pace of rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve. This would lead to a stronger US dollar that could benefit some of the export players.

|Hong Leong Investment Bank's Top Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||9 ||Focus on earnings certainty. We advocate defensive stance in stocks with earnings certainty and domestic oriented catalysts. Despite expectation of modest growth recovery and firmer commodity prices, there could be sporadic externally-induced volatility could shock the market.
Ringgit reversal could spice up sentiment. The recipes for a market rebound are almost here, i.e. growth stabilisation, firmer commodity prices, with the exception of stronger ringgit outlook.

|MIDF's Top Buy for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||8 ||LOOKING FORWARD TO A BRIGHTER 2017
• Malaysia’s GDP is expected to slightly rebound in 2017, based on the prospect of a stronger trade activity. But we are wary danger of the possibility of countries with strong purchasing power to lean more towards imports substitution.
• However, at the moment we remain optimistic with the better exports performance and hence economic growth in year 2017. Furthermore, we remain slightly bullish on the expectation that BNM’s measures on Ringgit will give a grad ... |
|RHB's Top Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||14 ||Escalating external risks have forced us to reconsider our more positive outlook in the preceding quarter’s strategy report. Uncertainty over US policies and their impact on growth, interest rates, USD strength and direction of portfolio flows are weighing on EM sentiment and creating volatility in the forex markets. Hopes that the US economy would provide a lift to global growth are not assured, while the growing wave of antiestablishment sentiment could put the EU in danger of disintegrati ... |
|PublicInvest Research's Top Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||8 ||The one major push factor to drive market participants out in droves at this point or even in the foreseeable future is the further weakening of the Ringgit, but which would only affect foreign investors specifically. Domestic investors flush with cash should be primed for re-entry. While still early days in assessing the potential impact of President-elect Trump’s action plans and ramifications on the rest of the world, we are cautiously optimistic that level heads will prevail.

|Maybank IB Research's Top Buy Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||9 ||We expect a mild pick-up in Malaysia’s growth as real GDP is expected to be at +4.4% in 2017 (2016E: +4.2%), underpinned by sustained consumer spending growth momentum, stronger growth in investments on progress of existing and rollout of new major infrastructure and investment projects, and the rebound in government consumption expenditure. The wild card is external trade due to the risk on US-China trade relation, although the rise in crude oil price in particular and the firming of commodity ... |
|Affin Hwang Capital's Top Calls for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||17 ||Major financial markets in Malaysia have been affected by global portfolio rebalancing in the aftermath of the US Presidential Election. The fear of capital controls resurfacing has caused the Ringgit to be hit particularly hard, despite the BNM and government authorities repeatedly quelling the rumours. We believe with good reason that capital controls will not happen. Unlike in 1998, Malaysia runs a current-account surplus, has ample excess liquidity residing at the BNM, is on an improving fi ... |
|Kenanga's Top Picks for Year 2017 ||WATCHLIST ||16 ||In a nutshell, we believe the market will likely to be volatile in view of the more aggressive rate hike decision in the US. Besides, policy and direction of the Trump’s presidency could spark more uncertainties. The underlying market conditions seem mixed and the relatively low excess liquidity in the domestic banking system remains a concern. Coupled with the underlying weak tone in ringgit, we have yet to see a strong reversal in foreign fund flows. The good news, however, could be the emerge ... |

|Kenanga's Top Picks for 2016 ||WATCHLIST ||10 ||Our view remains unchanged. We firmly believe that the expectations of US Fed further raising its benchmark discount rate will continue to cause high volatility in capital flows across global capital markets. Nevertheless, our decent index target of 1,755 still implies >6% potential gains from the current level. In addition, as we see no immediate earnings and price re-rating catalysts amid relatively high valuations as per the historical PER band, the local equity market is likely to be tra ... |
